    The old centre of João Pessoa is very beautiful, clean and preserved. Very well signposted and easy to find.

    Quiet a lot of peace, well maintained, spacious and with various divisions, to draw attention, exciting wedding location, private parking, ceiling all designed, you don't see art that way everywhere.

    Blackened by the hot and humid climate for five centuries, the São Francisco church dominates the historic center of the city of João Pessoa PB. As soon as we entered, the external sadness disappears immediately. It is an enchantment of clarity and color. I would highly recommend.

    I arrived at 1:40 pm, Saturday, and informed me that the Visitations of the day had closed on 1:30 pm. As the main tourist attraction of the State capital has a schedule of operation of these? No future.

Where to stay in Joao Pessoa

As you'd expect, most of the accommodations in Joao Pessoa crowd around the eastern coastline, jostling for the best position to catch a glimpse of the morning sun. Of these areas, the beach neighborhoods of Cabo Branco Tambaú and Manaíra offer by far the best range of places to stay. In pleasant contrast to many of Brazil's other coastal cities, a restriction on high-rise buildings along the shorefront has helped the city retain its laid-back, natural feel. Consequently, most hotels are housed in smaller, unobtrusive buildings. You won't find a huge range of budget accommodations in the city, but if visiting in low season (March to November), you can bargain for as much as 40 percent off the regular price.
